Interactive art demo utilizing plant feedback created by M.F.A. student Leslie Rollins

March 26, 2019

Leslie Rollins, an M.F.A. student at Alfred in the Expanded Media program at Alfred, visited Art History 300: Critical Play during a class on interactive art to demo his plant feedback system.  Rollins uses biofeedback technology to plug a plant into an audio synthesizer. As electromagnetic vibrations from sounds and air stimulate the plant, it communicates with the synthesizer to create sound.


In this first video, Julia Lauer enters into a dialogue with the plant by speaking Russian.




In the second video, Sage Gonzales dons a biofeedback headset and communicates with the plant using brainwaves.
